    Rather than resurrect the old thread that was originally about the Owners Club, I thought I'd create a new one where anyone should feel free to list and give news about any horses in which they have shares.

    For non-owners, I can't speak for others but I'll be as open as possible while respecting the interests of other shareholders by maintaining confidentiality if necessary.

    Now that the fall-out from Supreme Horse Racing is mainly complete, I can declare these interests.

    4 ex-Supreme horses:
    Kemboy - did well over the summer and, if he comes to hand, should be out somewhere next month.
    Cadmium - same as Kemboy really.
    Robin De Carlow - had quite a serious setback earlier in the year. Seems to be recovered and will be on a walking regime for a month before resuming training.
    Captain Kangaroo - ready to roll next month. May go for a winners bumper but more likely a maiden hurdle.

    2 recent additions, both with Donald McCain:
    Esme Shelby - second in a point early in the year. Should be ready next month.
    Luck Of Clover - placed several times on the flat. Has an entry at Uttoxeter on Friday.

    Nice one Arch. Always good to hear people's interest in racing goes beyond just betting for profit !

    I'll definitely get back into racehorse ownership one day. Such a fantastic experience.

      Thank you Archie,

      Really good news that RDC is recovering well and back walking.

          I don't have the funds to be as involved as archie, but I do have shares in a few of the Owners Group Horses:

          Pentland Hills - Nicky Henderson
          As has been widely reported - is out for the season.

          Glynn - Nicky Henderson
          Only ran once last season (did have initial entries for Ballymore and Albert Bartlett). Will jump a fence, but may be kept to hurdles initially - as he is so inexperienced.

          Stage Star - Paul Nicholls
          Entered in a Bumper this afternoon at Chepstow. One for the future.

          Hacker des Places - Paul Nicholls
          Came 3rd to Paros in France. Ran on Sunday (2nd - BF) - very lively in the prelims. Should be better if he learns to settle.

              A number of owners would approve of that.

                Thanks archie

                I am a massive fan of Kemboy and I was gutted when he fell in the 2019 Gold Cup.
                I felt that that could have been his year

                    Thanks DG

                    He looked good didn't he!
                    It's the first time he's seen a race course and he is bred to jump, so I guess that this season is all about getting some experience into him.

                    I wasn't expecting too much, but very happy with that

                          Stage Star - Post-race

                          No long-term target given by Paul Nicholls.
                          Will get a couple of easy weeks before they discuss plans for the remainder of the season.

                            I’ve got a horse with Tristan Davidson called ‘style it out’ and will be running in a novice hurdle before Xmas.

                            I also have some small shares in some flat horses with Nick Bradley racing. These being one 2 year old and six yearlings. Even though I’m a jump man, I should have a bit of fun next year.

                              Good thread archie.

                              As a very, very early stages question.... who would be interested in a Fat Jockey syndicate ownership?


                              With enough interest, I'm happy to start putting time in to this venture...

                              Like the post if you would....
